Remaking the Poltergeist!!

Dear Lord! I really have been banging on about remakes alarmingly frequently of late! We've got one Here, one here, here and here... and too many more to mention all of them... But here i am again, with more remake news... Yep, the 1982 classic, Poltergeist is due for a revamp according to Bloody Disgusting.
Poltergeist was one of my favourite films of the 80's. It was creepy as hell. It really was the first film to disturb me and make me scared of things coming out of my telly (Even though Speilberg penned and produced the original, I didn't find it emotionally challenging, just bloody scary!). Later this fear was overridden by The Ring, but lets not go into that... please!

"In 1982 MGM released one of the scariest films of all time, Poltergeist, which was written and produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by Tobe Hooper. The film is of legend, being that it's not only extremely scary, but that it was rated PG (after an appeal from an R). Word has come down from various confirmed sources that the once titled "Poltergeist: Kayeri" is now being retooled as a remake of the original film. Poltergeist, which is about a family's home being haunted by a host of ghosts, is now looking to attach a director."

So who could helm a remake of one of the scariest films of all time? Hmm... Imagine what Hideo Nakata might do with this... *Shudder*
